I Am Trying Not to Use the Word “Heart” So Much

Between my encampment of 
               bones & all time & territory, 

an instrument swings but my 
               editor said to stop using it 

so much she said I’m not saying 
               what I mean, so I write 

this word instead it’s almost 
               like a pair of wet hands 

tugging a bell of sunset in 
               & out of this world 

a hot light under the door 
                that leads to the beautiful 

women I don’t want to be anymore 
                I hug them anyways
